On March 22, renowned Native American activist, environmentalist and two-time vice-presidential candidate Winona LaDuke will give a lecture at LMU entitled "Killing the Black Snake: Indigenous-led Movements for Change."
Director of Honor the Earth and the subject of the 2017 documentary, First Daughter and the Black Snake, Ms. LaDuke continues to be a significant force in ongoing pipeline protests against big oil, also known as the "black snake." As a participant in LMU’s celebration of Women’s History Month, LaDuke is a former Ms. Magazine “Woman of the Year,” one of Time magazine’s “Fifty Most Promising Leaders,” and an inductee to the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Ms. LaDuke lives and works on the White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota, where her Land Recovery Project has won many awards including the prestigious 2003 International Slow Food Award for Biodiversity, recognizing the organization’s work to protect wild rice from patenting and genetic engineering.
